Furniture and Wooden Objects

We conserve, repair, and restore a comprehensive range of wooden objects, furniture and antiques ranging from contemporary pieces of cultural heritage to historically significant objects and antiques. Wooden objects can include furniture, sculptures, rolls of honour and honour boards, and Asian art such as lacquerware, Buddha figurines and temple dogs.

Our approach to wooden object conservation and restoration respects the integrity and history of the piece, while ensuring material and visual compatibility and lasting results. Our principal conservator’s initial training was in the Conservation and Restoration of Furniture and Wooden Objects, in which he obtained a Diploma with Distinction, from the Letterfrack Furniture College, Ireland, and his passion for wooden objects has continued to inform his practice throughout his career.
